Monday Music Moves Me

Jack White has been spending time in court dealing with his family drama lately, but he took a trip out to Mexico City last week to make a surprise appearance at the Fermatta Music Academy’s 20th anniversary celebration. White was named an honorary dean at the event.
“The sense of being a musician is making art, and I do not care whether it is solo or as part of a collective project,” White told the crowd of over 150 students and reporters. “At all times, I seek to express myself, and different circumstances of my life could also become multiple creative and stylistic channels.”
In addition to receiving the title of honorary dean, White was also presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the ceremony, where he was introduced by singer-songwriter Elan. 

This is the first time the academy has awarded the title to a musician.


This week's Monday Music Moves Me theme over at Xmas Dolly is 70's music.

Here are some 70's classics

I know absolutely nothing about 70's music so this was a great education! Stopping by to wish you a great and inspired week ahead. I am grateful for your fashion insight on my last post :)

OMG..about the only time I watch video's is when I play along with the 4M's but I had heard "I'm shaking." when I started watching it I was thinking that is so "Soul Train"...I love..got the funk on. All the rest where good 70 tunes, too. I was a little surprise to see Lynn Anderson in the mix..lol..I really do like her. I'm an old country fan. Thanks for sharing these have a Happy Monday!

Those crazy bell bottom jeans from the 70s are wild. When I look back at old photos of myself wearing those things I cringe. Great blast from the past with your classic 70s selections. Thanks for hitting the dance floor with the 4M crew!

You have great taste in music.

I'm not overly familiar with Jack White's work, but I do have the CD he produced for Loretta Lynn--that's a good one.

"Spirit in the Sky" is a favorite of mine in the ones you feature here.

I don't know much about 70's music either so I was sitting in the front room with my mom at the time of writing my 4Ms post so I asked her for a 70's song recommendation. LOL

I did recognize some of your picks though and I must say great choices! I enjoyed listening to some new tunes as well as jammin' out to the ones I know ^.^

Have a musical week!

Judging by past posts you'd make a good Jack White groupie, but I just don't get it, maybe it's an age thing.

All your other 70's stuff, yeah!
'specially 'Jeans On'
